Biryani is always special to me. I love Biryani, be it vegetarian or Non-vegetarian. It is not only tasty but also very simple to make. I make biryani in pressure cooker, which makes it one-pot. It saves lots of time and gives a Delicious meal. Today, I made this Mushroom Biryani for my husband’s Lunch box and he enjoyed it very much. This biryani recipe requires no grinding, so easy to make. I always have an opinion that the key ingredients for biryani are ginger-garlic paste, mint leaves and coriander leaves. These definitely lift the aroma and taste of the biryani. So make sure you have freshly ground ginger-garlic paste and fresh mint and coriander leaves. Let’s get into the recipe.
